The A3 Gallery (A-cubed) opened in November 2007 in the 798 Photo Gallery of Beijing. The owner Juan Li is a well-known Chinese wildlife photographer. The Gallery specializes in large contemporary photograph-based pieces and fine art prints.
However, it was her enthusiasm for the abstract work of her husband, Alister Benn, which drove her to open and manage the space. Having returned to live in Beijing full-time in 2007, they were struck by the powerful aesthetic which appeared to be recurrent in the cities newer architecture.
The gallery only displays Alister's work and does not feature any other artists.
